Mixed reactions as youngsters give SA’s vaccine rollout a shot in the arm

Still dressed in her school uniform, Amaani Limalia arrived at the Swartkop Covid-19 vaccination site in Pretoria — and left feeling excited.
“I feel great,” she said, moments after getting the jab.
But she was not the only person to get the injection at the site on Wednesday, the day that children aged from 12 to 17 became eligible to receive their Covid-19 vaccinations. Many parents fetched their children from school before heading to the site.
TimesLIVE previously reported that parents would not be required to give consent for their children to be vaccinated under the Children’s Act, according to acting health department director-general Nicholas Crisp.
